When I turn "Use true north" on, the compass doesn't give any readings for north. The read circle keep spinning to search its orientation.

When I turn off Use True North, it gives appx north. ie. "~275º".

Yes. While using the App is checked already.
But it doesn't work.

the top level location services is on?

if you go to the maps app and bring up your location, does it know where you are?

All location switches are on.
I just won't use compass. I give up.

You do, um, have a Series 5, right?

If so, it's under warranty, get in touch with AppleCare and have them figure it out or fix/replace your Watch.

If not, well, ahem.

I have tried using the warranty on my AW4 before and they need to have the watch for a week.
I cannot go to work without my watch. I have other watches but they don't have the daily 12 silent alarms I use.
I never have used compass since the 1st week of buying the watch so I don't miss it.
When I get AW6, I will be able to send it away for a week in October.
